The Dutch architectural practice UNStudio recently completed this interior design of an existing loft located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan for a private art collector. The wide space is charcterised by flowing walls which together with articulated ceilings create hybrid conditions for exhibition and living areas.

Here is what the architect explains:

“While the walls form a calm and controlled backdrop for the works of art, the ceiling is more articulated in its expression of this transition. By interchanging luminous and opaque, the ceiling creates a field of ambient and local lighting conditions, forming an organizational element in the exhibition and the living areas. In addition the former windows in the South wall have been replaced by floor to ceiling glass panes that frame and extend compelling views, over a full glass balcony, toward downtown Manhattan.”
